          Comments about Canon 72mm UV Protector Filter:

          So I hear both ways that you don't really need UV protection any longer. I'm not sure how I feel about that, what I do know is I feel safer with something protecting the lens. This is on my camera non stop, always. I went with Canon, because I'm a fan-boy and believe that they same quality standards they use on their lenses translates into their filters. I have this on my Canon 50mm 1.2L.

            Does not appear to change picture quality as stated. With a previous UV filter I owned, the quality of image noticeable worse with the filter on. I do not notice a different with this one.

                        Comments about Canon 72mm UV Protector Filter:

                        I purchased the 72 mm filter to add some front-end protection for the 18-200 mm Canon IS lens I use with my 60D. I have only shot about 200 frames using this filter, but I feel more comfortable using the lens now that it has a protective filter on it. The filter screws in very easily; I can remove it or attach it easily. I think their might be some loss of image quality, but I would think that it is to be expected and unavoidable. Canon also offers another 72 mm filter, and it's not clear to me what the difference between the two filters was, so I bought this one; I feel like it is a relatively small investment for a lens that was not super expensive, but certainly was not cheap.
